's go to cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. dan. >> reporter: joe, one of those concerns is about too much power in the hands of one person. we look back a few months ago it was unclear whether egypt was an ally of the u.s. now a senior administration official saying a relationship of trust has developed between president obama and president morsi. but as we know in any relationship things can get complicated. at the white house, a sense of calm kicking off the holiday season with the arrival of a 19-foot christmas tree. >> it is perfect. it's exactly what we needed. >> reporter: while the president headed to the golf course at joint base andrews. but the white house is closely watching developments in egypt. protests, violent at times and anger over what some see as president morsi's power grab, as declarations preventing any court from overturning his decisions. >> ilt appears the timing is curious. he's gotten this bump particularly for his role in mediating the cease-fire from the united states and from others. he's really seen as emerging stronger from this. >> repor

on the president or miss rice? >> the president is ultimately responsible. >> cnn's dan lothian first reported this morning's meeting with rice and mccain. he joins us now from the white house. dan, rice has not been nominated, not yet. how important are these meetings today? >> it's very important. republicans have been very concerned about the narrative that she put out there shortly after those benghazi attacks. they have a lot of questions and don't feel that this white house and this administration has been very transparent in the process. they have been very critical of her. as you heard the senator pount out there, it was ambassador rice who asked for these meetings. she will be accompanied by acting cia director mike morel. what's interesting is that we've seen some of the harshest criticism has been sort of toned down as we heard there from senator john mccain. from threatening to block her nomination as possible secretary of state to a willingness to hear her out, senator john mccain seems to be dialing back his public opposition to ambassador susan rice. >> i think she deserves the

shows seems to me and to many to be misplaced. >> cnn's dan lothian is at the white house. so, dan, is it even worth -- is it even worth the president nominating susan rice? because there just doesn't seem to be any meeting of the minds about her on the republican side. >> reporter: you're right. i guess it's always possible that the woit house could give up the fight on her but also possible is that if the president believes she is the right person for that position, then i don't think this is something that will move him off of susan rice. but nonetheless, the white house is pushing very hard in defending her, as you pointed out. we should point out again that this is all a hypothetical discussion because the president has not nominated her. nonetheless the white house defend i defending her, saying that she was only acting on information that came from the intelligence community and really that everyone is focused on the wrong thing. what the focus should be on is on what happened in benghazi, who is responsible for it and this those people be brought to justice, carol. >> susan
